    Waves Announces V14

    The new version of Waves plugins is with us - 22/06/22



    Waves Audio has announced Waves V14, the latest version of Waves plugins. They say that Waves V14 enables faster load time, new Trim & Mix knobs in Waves' most popular compressors, and quick new preset workflows, boosting creativity and keeping plugins future-proofed and up-to-date. Here's more details direct from the company:

    With V14, Waves users can now control and fine-tune dynamics faster than ever, with brand new trim and mix knobs added to Waves' most popular compressors: the API 2500, the CLA-2A, CLA-3A and CLA-76 Compressor/Limiters, the Renaissance Compressor and the SSL-G Master Buss Compressor. These new features allow users to stay creative, quickly balancing volume and creating parallel compressions in seconds, directly from the plugins.

    V14 offers faster loading times for plugins, presets and sessions in your DAW and enhanced quick drag-and-drop preset workflow.

    V14 also features new ultra-sharp HiDPI graphics for select Waves plugins: Abbey Road TG Mastering Chain, API Collection, the CLA-76, CLA-2A, CLA-3A Compressor/Limiters, the F6 Floating-Band Dynamic EQ, OVox Vocal ReSynthesis and PuigTec EQs.

    Also, V14 includes a new standalone application to the CR8 Creative Sampler, allowing users to shape, manipulate and play samples without a DAW.

    Updating plugins to V14 helps future-proof sessions and ensure that Waves plugins will remain fully compatible with the latest operating system and DAW versions. This way, users can stop worrying about technical details and focus their attention on what matters most – their creative workflow.

    To update to V14, Waves plugins need to be covered by the Waves Update Plan, the complete care and support plan for Waves products. The Waves Update Plan comes free for one year with every new Waves plugin or bundle purchase and is renewable at any time afterwards.

    Owners of products covered by the Waves Update Plan also get:
    • Second licenses for any covered products, for the duration of their coverage; second licenses can be used on a different computer, without having to move licenses back and forth between devices.
    • Premium tech support, including phone, email & personal remote assistance via TeamViewer.
    • Exclusive free access to the studios of the world's best GRAMMY®-winning producers and engineers, as they show their methods and techniques with Waves Premium Masterclasses.
    Waves Audio dedicates significant effort and software development resources, in order to ensure that the plugins that users have invested in, whether recently or years ago, will remain compatible with all the latest major DAWs and operating systems. V14 is the latest in Waves' ongoing updates, allowing producers, musicians and engineers to continuously focus on creating the best music and audio they possibly can, now and in the future.

    And still no oversampling.
    Some plugins support 96k and others 192k maximum.
    Too bad.

    I'd like to see a list of the Waves plugins people still use for good reasons. And then come up with a decent list of acceptable/suitable, equivalent or better plugins from other developers; for all 10 or 20 of them. This would let someone make an easier decision about putting up with Waves ever increasing bundle sizes, software manager WC, and all of the other things to consider.

    And yet, Charlie Puth uses waves plugins to produce at just 48k and Serban Ghenea's assistant John Hanes said they mix mostly at 48K and occasionally 96K using mostly waves plugins. But hey, to each his own.

    CR8 is totally broken on Windows, at least the other plugins load as fast as stock plugins now.

    Fuckers can't even straight up do hiDPI support for all of them at once. v13 has some, v14 has some. Next year v15 will have some. Imagine just adding higher scale pngs to a folder taking an year

    Absolutely, maybe only for mac users once to get m1 support on what you really use, but do you really need when you can find the best in other brands software house?

    Have you noticed that Cosmos is no longer free now?

    Check this behavior:
    • Introduce new Sampler with low reduced price.
    • Offer FREE sample manager to attract even more people.
    • Than offer new update and make Cosmos paid with the need to even log in!
    For me that feels quite fishy
